Old Cumberland Trail

The Old Cumberland Trail is a new trail that we helped cut in at the Coal Creek OHV area in Oliver Springs, TN.  This trail was in the making for about a year and a half.  Recently it was finished with the help of the Atomic City Fourwheelers and Rattlerock 4wd Club.  If you’ve ever been to the Coal Creek area you know that there are many levels of trails ranging from gravel road to difficult.  The area is about 72,000 acres and is ever changing with the mining in the area as well as erosion prevention.  Some trails get closed and the reopened, and then some get closed and new formed.  This new trail is located just off of Walden Ridge Rd. at the crest of the ridge.  This area of Coal Creek has never been used for OHV use until now.  There are several obstacles along the trail and a great view throughout.  I would recommend that 33″ or larger tires be used on the trail and a winch mandatory.  I’ve attached a video to give you a taste of what to expect when you tackle this trail.
